I'm sure there are pressure problems and potential grind problems, however moritakas also are slightly hollow ground above the edge (shoddy workmanship putting it in leads to the holes) Hence why you see good polish at the edge and above the hollow. As far as Ken and his philosophies go I'm not even going there had enough debates on FF to last a lifetime.

Lets say I understand why he just spent 15 minutes [!] to show you how natural stones finish is different, however, why wouldnt he just make a little section of the blade for show, but with proper progression, instead of producing different scratch patterns all over the place? I mean, some people watching that could think thats the way to go.

Nah, he said it was the knife.

I love how they never mention that each natural is unique and qualities may vary from stone to stone. They generalize the stone by name and that is it.

I once had a friend here who brought me something fun to see and play with. What he had was a natural (I can't recall what exactly it was) that had a layer broken off of the surface at the half point so that what we now had was a stone with the original surface and then about 2mm down on the other half was another layer. He wanted me to see how different the results he was getting from the two different layers. Well we used a few different knives while trying the stone out and I was just amazed at what we saw, it was like using two absolutely completely different types of stones in both feel and results achieved.
The lesson I learned that day was that even if you find a stone that kicks ass it might not be kicking the ass in a few years time.
